How To Delete Comments On Instagram

Instagram is an online photo/ video sharing social networking service which allows their users to take pictures and share them on various social platforms.

There are large numbers of apps available, but Instagram dominates them all, due to its amazing filter set and easy to use the app.  

And as it is with social media, once you’re there, and you connect with a few friends and people; you’ll start having loads of fi\un receiving comments on your photos and commenting on others photos as well!

The situations are never the same always. Sometimes you get good, and positive comments and sometimes the comments are that odd that you need to delete them.

If you get positive comments then ok, but if you get some offensive or rude comments, the situation can tend to get out of hand! Though it’s not the major issue for many people some conscious people take it seriously and prefer to delete the comment.

Step 2:  Go to the post where you have done a typo or a photo where you want to delete the comment. Like as you can see the below screenshot, I have written quotw instead of quote.

Note: Remember, you can delete other’s comment(s) on your picture only, and on other’s picture, you can delete your own comments only. 

Step 3:  Once you are on the image or post select the comment you wish to delete. Wondering how? Don’t be, use your finger and tap the comment and swipe it to the left direction. You can take help of the screenshot mentioned below.
